Menu Plan Monday

What is it about cold days that make you sleepy? Is it some minor version of hypothermia setting in? I don't know but yesterday was a beautiful nearly 50 degrees and today it hasn't gotten above 32..brrrr! They're talking more snow which isn't surprising since it's still January, but honestly, I could live without it. It's so much easier to clean and organize and unbox when you can haul those boxes out to the barn without getting your feet and pant legs soaked. Right now, you can't get out our back door because of the big pile of empty boxes in front of it. Oh well, at least they're empty!

This week I'm going to be tackling our living room. It still has 4 or 5 boxes in it plus all of the totes stacked up from where I've been sorting Christmas things in as I've found them. I know there are still Christmas things hiding in boxes, but now that I emptied out one of the giant grey totes (my weekend project), I can store at least part of the Christmas tree in it, which means that tote can go into the closet and these other ones that are full can join it. Come Spring (and when I have some help), I'm going to move all of these Holiday decoration totes out to the barn.

Other than the living room, I don't have any other big plans for this week. Tomorrow I'll be driving into Hastings to join the boys for their birthday club lunch at school. They both invited me and Ben reminded me numerous times to make sure I left here by 10:30. Lunch is at 11..heh. I need to come up with $2.75 to buy myself lunch. That shouldn't be too much of a problem.

But, speaking of food, I need to figure out what I'll be eating this week. I know what we'll be having this weekend, so that's two days taken care of!

Monday- Whole wheat pasta w/ natural red sauce
Tuesday- Steak w/ broccoli & tatos
Wednesday- Chicken Wraps w/ Coleslaw
Thursday- Burgers w/ Salad
Friday- Homemade Pizza
Saturday- Lasagna
Sunday- Chicken and Dumplings (Crockpot)

Ok, I just made myself hungry. It's a good thing it's not long until lunchtime! Keep your eyes on the blog, folks, I have a giveaway coming up!
